Meeca,

Gosh, wasn’t expecting this so soon Was at least thinking you would of made it till 100 or then some! You were such a strong woman: a daughter,, sister, mother and grandmother and even a great grandmother! You spoke you word and out did us Abd a sermon. You always had the last word no matter what. You were not afraid of nothing especially when we ended up the wrong side of town playing bing off garland road. Ha!

Well you are back in Texas finally and not how we wanted it to be. You are and a true Texan fan! I will miss you so much and especially the long talks . You always said go with the grain even if you disagreed . Loved how said OMG . You loved each and everyone one of us no matter and yeat were so in tuned to see how each and everyone of us was doing. You always made us grandkids food even when we weren’t hungry lol. The sooga and the Italian food . We will miss this. Especially the cards you will send us underlining that was so important to you you wanted us to know. Hope I receive one last letter but won’t .

No words to else express expect to know how much you were loved and still loved in heaven ! Hope you are looking down And smiling and loathing thinking how and I gonna haunt come back and haunt you:. Member you said that to me once ha!


You will be forever and always missed so many memories and pictures we will cherish
